Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

Folks tell me this is one of my specialties. Almonds give these light patties a crisp coating and sour cream adds richness. They're flavorful and special enough for company.—DeWhitt Sizemore, Woodlawn, Virginia


  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon seafood seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) salmon, drained, bones and skin removed
  • 1-1/4 cups finely chopped almonds
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Lemon wedges, optional


  1. In a bowl, combine the egg yolks and sour cream. Add bread crumbs and seasonings. Stir in salmon. In a bowl, beat egg whites until stiff; fold into the salmon mixture. Shape into 12 patties; coat with almonds.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet; fry patties over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with lemon if desired.
